Mongrel_service folder has different name

Hello guys,
I’m trying to run a Rails up using Mongrel on a Windows machine.
In the same machine I have already installed (successfully) an other
Rails app that uses Mongrel as well. I din that almost 2 years ago so I
don’t remember exactly what I did but I guess I have followed the same

Now when I try to start Mongrel

C:\rails_apps\freshmintapp>mongrel_rails start -e production -p 5001

I get the error below:
gem_original_require': no such file to load -- c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mongrel_service-0.3.4-x86-mswin32/lib/mongrel_service/init.rb (LoadError) from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:inrequire’
load' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/source_index.rb:235:ineach’
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/source_index.rb:235:in each' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/gem_plugin-0.2.3/lib/gem_plugin.rb:112:inload’
from c:/ruby/bin/mongrel_rails:16:in `load’
from c:/ruby/bin/mongrel_rails:16

The first thing I did was to check out the presence of init.rb and I
discovered that the folder mongrel_service-0.3.4-x86-mswin32 doesn’t
exist or better it has a different name:

Anyone have an idea why this is happening? How can I solve it?


I forgot to mention the running app uses Rails 2.0.2 and the one I’m
trying to run Rails 2.3.4

Could be a bug from mongrel_service and one of its dependencies.

Please remove the gem and try install it again.

Also, verify you have latest gem_plugin gem installed.

Thanks but I don’t want to mess up with the working application so I
have simple duplicate the folder and renamed it and both apps work. It’s
not the best solution but works.

Have a good 1!
